Stajan recently came back, and now Mason Raymond makes his return to the lineup. Sven Baertschi got sent back to Adirondack to make room for him. Soon, Joe Colborne should also rejoin the team. Who do you think will be sent down to make room for him? Too much talent - but I think it should be Brian McGrattan. Hiller gets the start for the Flames. He's 0-4-0 all-time against the Leafs, and has allowed 19 goal with a save percentage of .849. Toronto is the only team that Hiller has never earned a victory against.
